Heater blower quit
Make sure that you know whether you have automatic climate control or not, as with ACC you have a power module and not the simpler resistor to deal with. In either case, you need to pull the glove box out of the dash. I believe there are several screws that come out and then you may need to press on the left side to make the box come all of the way out of the dash. It's pretty flexible so don't worry about cracking it. Unhook the catch on the left side before you try to pull the box out.
Back up in the area above the foot well is an electrical connector held by two screws.
Before you take the screws out, unhook the electrical connector by sliding the red tab and then giving a gentle tug. Remove the screws and pull the resistor / power module out. Hopefully you can do this and leave things apart since my local dealer didn't have the resistor in stock when I replaced my rear one 2 weeks ago and needed 2 days to get mine in. The part (resistor) is about $20 - $25 and the new one goes in as easily as the old one came out.
If you need to drive the vehicle and are certain that it is the resistor, I would order it and then pull/replace it in one session. I knew I had a bad resistor when my fan would only blow on one speed. If your fan won't blow at all, you still run the risk that the motor is bad and may need to pull it and have it checked.
